I can't comment on the hotel because we went to the Rex for dinner and music. The food is tasty, but not exceptional, and the menu is pretty average, however I love this place! We visited Toronto for a couple of days at New Years and were told that this was the place to go for live jazz. Unfortunately they... More

Owner and staff are very friendly, subway and streetcar stops only minutes away, this hotel is good for the pub food and the jazz bands (you pay to see separately if there are any tickets left) however, you can still hear a little if your in the room, but can still fall asleep easily. Would recommend to couples needing a... More

Travelling Solo in Toronto looking for central location. Couldn't get a better location. Queen St is a town lost in a city. Everything is at a stones throw from with a great mix of vintage & high end fashion, to your selection of eateries though The Rex does really good pub fare. The rooms were okay, the shared bathrooms at... More

Good Value for money, not usual type of place I stay, but need place to rest - it works. Also Jazz downstairs can be really great! Very central location, close to convention sites, downtown shopping and dining.

The hotel is bare bones. There is no lobby≥ You go into the resto to get the key to your room. My room seemed to be very clean, but as I moved in, I saw that te maid had not taken away a dirty towel on the back of the door. a minor thing, but I did wonder if the... More

The staff at the Rex Hotel were the best - friendly, attentive and always wanted to help improve your experience. Our reason for choosing the hotel was it's reasonable price and being recommended to stay on the West side of town. However, when we got there as 2 women alone we did not feel entirely comfortable in the area -... More

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at the Rex. Such a great location, a short walk from everything downtown. The rooms were clean and the service was amazing, the jazz bar downstairs was definitely a plus, very entertaining. On top of all of these pluses, the price was unbeatable. Will definitely stay again!

We stayed here while in Toronto seeing Wicked. It was just perfect, clean, friendly and buzzing and we would definitely stay again. We had a room with private bathroom and it was well worth it, you are in the centre of everything.

The reservation and check in process was incredibly easy; our flight landed around 10pm because of a delay but we called ahead the hotel desk said there wouldn't be any problems checking it. The hotel is literally in the middle of all the toronto attractions. the only time we took a cab was when were were going closer to east... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of September; although the room is on the small side, the location was great - walking distance of the CN Tower - and the live jazz in the bar downstairs was amazing! We were on the second floor, and couldn't hear any noise from the bar. The bar food is basic... More
